    I have been working at LONG Building Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    LONG is an outstanding company whose upper management truly cares about the employees, the customers and obviously about making money, in this order. I have worked for large companies including Tyco, Johnson Controls and small companies including Simplex Time Recorder, Damone Andrew, and LONG is the best. The founder of LONG was one of the most caring men I have meet. Wills truly wanted his employees to success and worked hard to make sure that happened. His son, our now leader, is equally the same. He cares and fosters the success of the employees. Again, LONG is by far the BEST company to work for.

    Cons

    All companies have warts but LONG has few that I have seen in the 3 plus years I have worked here.

    I worked at LONG Building Technologies for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of the pros that Long had when they were a small company have dissipated.

    Cons

    Long does not appreciate a employee who has busted there butt for them, this can be seen by the high turnover of long term employees. The pay is horrible compared to other companies the size of Long, even if you have the experience. Be aware of the promises LONG makes, they DO NOT KEEP THEM. Long has been buying lots of companies and putting themselves in a bad financial situation. Robbing Peter to pay Paul, and then penalizing the employees that have worked hard, only to hear them say they are cutting back on new vehicles or a work boot allowance.

    I worked at LONG Building Technologies for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Co-workers were great and profit sharing was predictable

    Cons

    Bad management in my department. They played favorites, they we're power hungry and completely out of touch with the day to day operations of their department. They refused to help employees advance with in the company, and when asked for advancement the employee got told no and basically that the employee was replaceable and to be grateful they have a job. Basically a shut up or leave mentality.

    The Company Offers a great balance of work life and family life. I enjoy working for Long because everyone has a voice and everyone can contribute their ideas, ya, some ideas will not be used but some will. Regardless you are not looked down upon for voicing your opinions or ideas.

    Cons

    Long takes to long to respond to possibilities and opportunities.

    I worked at LONG Building Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Super flexible Lots of independence Very good pay for technical workers Lots of incentive programs Very relaxed (I honestly felt awkward taking a break to play basketball with the boss during work) Upper management is very welcoming. Mark Balent, CEO, really cares. Overall, I really enjoyed working here. There were some unbelievable benefits, great culture, and management staff were all great people.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure to work off the clock / work over time for free to save jobs that were poorly bid. I was told that’s just how the industry is. It happened ALL the time. Absolutely unacceptable. This pressure came from the lower management (PMs and a former branch manager. I doubt the big guys were aware. Training program is nonexistent if you’re new to the industry. I spent a lot of time aimlessly trying to teach myself and being told to figure it out. The job is too complex for that. Potential for layoffs is high. I wouldn’t work in this field again.
